Kanye Buys $180k Watch - Of Himself

Rapper Kanye West celebrated his recent resurgence and the success of his latest album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, by purchasing a custom made exclusive 18k yellow gold Tiret Watch.

The expensive piece of jewelry, which costed about $180,000, is 18k gold with over 8 karats of yellow, black, brown and white diamonds, which were cut and placed to form an image of Kanye West.

According to The Luxist it took Tiret over five months to create the dial itself.

Last month, R&B singer Usher commissioned Tiret to make a one-of-a-kind watch with his own image on it as well, at a price tag of around $250,000.
